Individual electrical connections between two banks of electrodes can be made by the novel tape, a layer of which contains electrically conductive particles. Each particle has an electrically conductive surface and a ferromagnetic core by which the particles can be magnetically attracted to form nonintersecting stripes, each stripe containing a continuous array of contacting particles and hence being electrically conductive over both its length and thickness.

Title
